Re: Stop Creation of .bak Files ???

bak file_2021-09-24_123733.png I did some more investigating; and, by looking at the folder in Explorer, I found a bunch of bak files that were not displaying in XnViewMP. Try as I might, I could not make these .bak files display in XnViewMP; it is untelling how many of these I have lurking within ...

Yes; it happens with edit IPTC, with edit Comment, and sometimes with edit GPS.

I only ever use jpegs for metadata editing; no other formats.

Re: Stop Creation of .bak Files ???

How do you place it? by copying it with XnView? By drag and drop from another folder could you post a screenshot of 'settings>General>File operations' .bak files are also randomly and frequently created when I add or edit Comment and when I add or edit IPTC. Often, a .bak file will show up after th...

Stop Creation of .bak Files ???

I asked this question quite some time ago; and now, several versions later, I still need a definite answer. I only ever use XnViewMP to write Embedded Comments and IPTC into jpeg files. I have tried my best to disable anything in Settings that would prompt the creation of these annoying .bak files. ...

Suggestions on appropriate tutorials and U-tube videos would also be appreciated. Bill There are many answers to your q...

Sent as e-mail attachment.

I have tried several different templates and even created new ones using different methods, in an attempt to get this figured out; regardless of the template I choose, the results are the same.

Yes; all tags are there until I "Load" the template and then they disappear.

I did that and it still wipes the tags when a single image is processed.

When I process two or more images, it leaves the tags intact.

I am using 64-bit Windows 7 Pro

could you send me an original file? and screenshot of IPTC's settings? Maybe this will work better as attachments. >Edit>Update: Obviously, adding images to posts, either inline or as attachments, strips all metadata from the image.

Keyword Tags and IPTC Editor Problem

A new problem has became apparent concerning keyword tags and the IPTC Editor (I have the latest version) It did not used to do this. Without opening the IPTC Editor, without the images ever having been in the IPTC Editor, all keyword tags written into the file will display under the IPTC tab; they ...

Re: Edit IPTC - Load Template Question ???

xnview wrote: Tue May 25, 2021 6:04 am datas are merged between the template and the fields in dialog
Does that mean, if I have an image file that already has some IPTC data, instead of the template erasing that data, it will leave it in place and add the data from the template ?
